What is Study UK?

Study UK relaunched in July 2016 as Independent Higher Education, the UK membership organisation and national representative body for independent providers of higher education, professional training and pathways. Visit IndependentHE.com for our new website and to learn about our current activities.

Since 2007, Study UK has worked with partners and stakeholders worldwide to represent the interests of the independent education sector and its students.

Study UK members form a diverse community of over 130 quality-assured providers preparing British and international students for university entry, offering specialist vocational and professional education, and working in partnership with universities to deliver fully validated higher education courses. 

The UK is a leading destination for international students and our membership includes world-class independent education institutions with a growing list of influential alumni. We work hard to raise the global profile and standing of UK independent education even higher. 

We lobby and represent our members’ interests at government level, advising them on changes in policy and regulation. We provide joint marketing and promotional opportunities. We offer a platform for peer discussion and networking. We provide training and professional development opportunities through a varied events programme, helping to continuously advance standards within the sector.
